STAGE TUBE: Gene's Time Visits YANK!


"Gene's Time" is a web-series that has been started at RAGTIME. The show has expanded Gene's reach and now has him "joining" the casts of multiple Broadway and Off-Broadway shows this year.

This first episode is shot with the cast of YANK, and Gene visits with Bobby Steggert and Jeffrey Denman. Over the next few weeks Gene will be "joining" the casts of 101 DALMATIONS on tour, the new cast of HAIR, a special episode where Gene will pick the brain of the longest running cast member in a Broadway show George Lee Andrews at PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, and much more.

"Gene's Time" is a web series coming from the minds of Benjamin Schrader and Aaron Galligan-Stierle. "Gene's Time" follows the misadventures of Broadway's newest understudy Gene as he begins his daunting task of covering EVERY role in EVERY show. A graduate from the school of hard knocks, Gene's resume includes such accomplishments as successfully micro-waving a frozen burrito, rollerskating on an ice skating rink and mastering fluency in a dozen made up languages. A true song and dance man minus the singing and dancing, Gene has a passion for all things showbiz sending him on a quest to be employed in every show on Broadway at the same time.

Benjamin Schrader is an actor, singer and puppeteer. His previous credits include Broadway's RAGTIME, AVENUE Q, Tom Sawyer in the Broadway revival tour of BIG RIVER, Gabe in NEXT TO NORMAL at NYMF and Off Broadway's DOG SEES GOD.

Aaron Galligan-Stierle is an actor, director, audition coach and creative consultant. Broadway: "Ragtime" (Henry Ford); "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" (Papa Who). "Cinderella" staring Lea Salonga; Utah Shakespearean Festival. Aaron has taught workshops and acting classes across the country and has directed more than 20 new plays. Aaron also co-owns the film Production Company "Lonely Planet Productions."
